The only thing I didn't like was how boring some parts were. I found myself zoning out, tired of hearing yet another source explain the importance of carbs, proteins, and healthy fats. It isn't that this isn't useful information. It's just information I've already heard--and heard presented in a better way. (See The Beauty Detox Solution: Eat Your Way to Radiant Skin, Renewed Energy and the Body You've Always Wanted and Feed Your Face: Younger, Smoother Skin and a Beautiful Body in 28 Delicious Days.)
So, overall, I wasn't wowed by this book. Some information was useful, but when I need to refresh my memory, I will just reread the two books I mentioned above.
I think that the book would be much more actionable if it only took up half the space on those aspects, and filled that with answers to "now, what are the next steps?". The authors talk about taking little baby steps, one at a time, but don't spell out in enough detail what those steps could look like. After all, they talk about pretty drastic changes, at least to some of us. So, what could a realistic transition from coffee to coconut water look like? The list of allowed / preferred foods just is not enough, at least not for me. How much is "a fist" of grains, translated into slices of bread? This would be much easier if the book gave some guidance such as
- if you usually eat a sandwich for lunch, you may want to try this....
- if you usually have a salad for lunch, make sure you have the right balance of protein and fat by adding / replacing...
I can see all the potential benefits and positive effects, but as somebody with a low energy level, I need a bit more handholding and guidance getting there. Too many aspects remain on the "just do it" level, such as the advice that keeping a neat and tidy house boosts energy. Ah well, that's an entirely different set of challenges, and for another day / book.
